Hallo everybody, thanks for warm words.
Been a hard time working, so there are some updates and more still coming.
We live in good old town of Tallinn in Estonia by the Baltic sea. Our workshop sterted about 15 years ago. We also work on icon and painting restauration, right now there are five of us.
Working stage by stage passing each operation to another is the main medieval principle of craft either in Europe so in Russia. The work is passed continuously through carpenter, gesso maker, gilder and then to painters. Sometimes, in case of small or uncomplicated work, somebody can combine duties.
I should write an article on this on my website in the "Iconpainting" division.
